Kaasstengels Kastengel or kue keju is Dutch influenced-Indonesian cheese cookie in the form of sticks, commonly found in the Netherlands and Indonesia. The name describes its ingredients, shape and origin; kaas is the Dutch word for “cheese”, while stengels means “sticks”. Unlike most cookies, kaasstengels taste savoury and salty instead of sweet. In Indonesia, owed to its colonial links to the Netherlands, kaasstengels, together with nastar and putri salju are the popular kue kering (“dried kue“, or cookie) during festive occasion, such as Natal (Christmas) and Lebaran (Eid al Fitr).
